Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Travelers are showing a huge interest in the fast-growing sector known as "experiential" tourism—vacations that encompass heritage, culture, nature, ecology, and soft adventure.

In the footsteps of the briskly selling The 100 Best Vacations to Enrich Your Life featuring North American destinations, our new title extends these ardent travelers sights to global scale. From helping to build a health clinic in Tanzania to learning massage in Thailand to aiding green turtle conservation in Belize, The 100 Best Worldwide Vacations to Enrich Your Life is full of fun, meaningful, and memorable possibilities for todays discerning traveler. The lively text irresistibly conveys the charm and excitement of each location and delivers solid, reliable travel-planning information. Abundant sidebars reveal little known local facts, nearby places to visit, lists of things to do, and more.

Other books on the market address singular aspects of experiential vacations around the world (learning, volunteering, culinary). But none presents the best of all categories in one comprehensive guide—until now. The 100 Best Worldwide Vacations to Enrich Your Life holds great appeal for travelers of many interests who want to make the most of their vacations. And, with its elegant packaging, this deluxe trade paperback will catch the attention of gift-shoppers as an inspired and attractive choice.

Book News Annotation:

The author of the North American destination-centered 100 Best Vacations to Enrich Your Life (2007) aims to shake up travelers' preconceptions about other countries and themselves, by detailing the why's and how's of such vacations as learning to belly dance in Turkey, test-driving a fantasy career as a chef in culinary hotspots, or assembling wheelchairs for land mine victims in Cambodia. Chapters on arts & crafts getaways, volunteer vacations, learning retreats, and wellness escapes include a resource or two. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
